Puddles, Fizz and BubblesBlog / Produced by The High Calling
L.L. here for Random Acts of Poetry. Lifting poems from the comment box (a pastime I’ve been known to indulge before). This seemed like the perfect thing to do, since next week’s prompt encourages us to find poems in the ordinary things people say. Of course I’ve taken liberties with your words. Dropped some. Added others. Nipped phrases, rerolled them as lines and frosted them with a title. You’ve forgiven me for such rollicky behavior in the past, so I’m trusting you’ll forgive me again, and maybe even grant a smile. Ann’s comment on I Collect Words “Compliment” This poem fizzes and sparkles, carbonated words bubbling up good things... I like it! LL’s comment on Deb’s Infuse and Coddle and Fill "The Call" They burst from bedrooms, bathrooms, where wafts of rosemary onion basil cinnamon vanilla or banana greet their rising... nAncY’s comment on I Collect Words “Strategy” i think i will start with a wordpuddle and work my way up. Erica’s comment on I Collect Words “Pool” Pour in words, watch them splash and sparkle in the sun, stir them around to get the temperature just right...and dive in!
